  • Preparing a framework for India's maritime security, including coastal security, energy and environment.
  • Assessing the emerging maritime security context taking into account both conventional and non-conventional challenges as well as new opportunities.
  • Identifying and outlining key interventions which need to be urgently undertaken to strengthen India's maritime security
